First time there. Very unique and historical building. Rooms were nice and spacious, clean and airy. Bed was not overly comfortable and the pillows could have been better. The staff was great. John behind the bar was a delight.

The best place in Northumberland for their DOVER SOLE. It has a lovely dining room. They tables are far enough apart for private conversations. Well recommended!!.

Staying at the Inn, I was able to enjoy excellent breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as a group event dinner. Service, presentation, and flavours were all outstanding and the ambience of the inn - the sign reads "Est. 1835", and the decor and settings impeccable- is unrivalled in the area. Wine and bar selections are superb as well. Without... More

The atmosphere here is great. Century Inn and feel. The service is great and everyone is incredibly welcoming and friendly. The menu is limited, but the selection is good. I had the steak and my colleague had the lobster. Both were quite good. They are willing to accommodate requests without issue. Again, I cant say enough about the staff! Wonderful

We arrived to hors d'oeuvres, wine, and good conversation. Right on time we started a seven course meal, which was flawless. We are looking forward with great anticipation to our next visit.
